North Korean’s Supreme Nutjob has ‘pardoned’ the two journalists they have been holding captive and they will be on the way home soon.
Obviously this is good news but I’m not sure we really need to celebrate too much over what former President Clinton may or may not have done. The fact is that North Korea in effect kidnapped these two innocent women, held them hostage and didn’t let them go until they got the payoff of a visit from a former President of The United States.
Certainly I am not going to argue that we should have left these women to suffer in prison just to avoid having Clinton go over, but I also think we need to be careful not to set too much of a pattern. As anyone who has spent time with a three year old will tell you, if you keep giving in they will keep pushing.
But regardless of what needs to be done in the future, great news for the families of the freed hostages.
